    You game too much. I'm not expecting anything but results.

    No, I don't know where you are going with this.

    But I see the way this thread is going. It reminds me of Gaza. As soon as the Israelis voluntarily left it the Gazans took it over feeling as though they had triumphed.

    Now look at the thread with all the talk about games and stuff.

    Bhkad, I'm assuming you think that violent video games can have a negative impact on childrens' behaviour. I suggest you check out this book.

    Yes or no, you want a five year ban/moratorium on games during your proposed research?

    Jack Thompson's expert witness eh? The lawyer who got disbarred because of his unprofessional and suspect behavior in going after the video game industry? And what about the boys that didn't play violent games, there's no report of their actions with the blast test. Did the fair the same, less, more? What about long term effects? And this was just boys, what about age groups; how does it fair across those? This wasn't an "experiment" it was one test without statistics which would go into a larger set for an experiment. It was only a test with no real conclusions being able to be drawn from it.

    No.

    I compromised on that part of my stance.

    Now I'm not so fascist, eh?

    "Moreover, they argue that much of society's concern about children's computer use has resulted from junk science, hypocritical pundits, and politicians who waste millions of dollars legislating a nonissue."

    Yes, I think the same Jack Thompson that proposed his "Modest Proposal" of a Video Game to be made where in the main character actually goes on a killing spree against Video Game manufacturers in exchange for a $10,000 check made out to a charity of Paul Eibler's (Chairmen of the company that made GTA) choosing. The same man that then, when such a game was made, said it was just "satire" and refused to pay the check. The same man that when Penny Arcade decided to send forth the following check...



    ...to the ESA Foundation that was "For Jack Thompson because Jack Thompson Won't", decided to threaten legal action against them for doing it.

    Yep, definitely that Jack Thompson.
